Paper Abstract

We give an overview of the Adaptive Optics (AO) and Multi-conjugate Adaptive Optics (MCAO) system of the planned 4m European Solar Telescope (EST). The parameter space and the problems of solar MCAO working in the visible are explained. The wavefront reconstruction schemes presently being considered are explained. First estimates of the expected MCAO performance for varying parameter sets are given.
